Julie admits that is a valid concern as trust is very important, but questions what else Paulina has to lie about. Julie believes Abe knows everything now. Julie states that she loathes TR but he does have certain charms, is a smooth talker, and is sort of a Hollywood player. Julie suggests perhaps Abe doesn’t care to compete with the new kid in town.

Lani says they don’t have to do this right now but Eli wants to know what happened. Lani responds that what they know is that Eli left Beth at the police station, and she said that he said he’d be right back but didn’t say where he was going or why, and somehow he ended up at the park where a drug dealer ended up shooting him. Eli asks why but Lani says they don’t know. Lani informs him that she and Shawn were first on the scene and the drug dealer Frank had already overdosed and there was a needle by his body and Eli’s gun in his hand.

TR is surprised to hear that Eli is awake. Tripp adds that they have every reason to believe he’ll make a full recovery. TR asks if he said anything about what happened to him. Tripp says no as Eli doesn’t seem to remember what happened before the shooting but that is normal with trauma like his. Tripp adds that it’s possible his memory will come back, so they will just have to wait and see. TR thanks Tripp and says he’ll tell Paulina right away. TR then hangs up in frustration.
